Antique Bed Hardware

This is the same hardware I use on my beds. I also offer 14 pitch bed bolts for antique replacement bolts. Although 14 threads per inch was the most common bed bolt thread take a look at some examples of original bed bolts for examples of other threads used. You might be interested to take a look at some antique bed wrenches as well. Here is some information about how the count the threads on a bolt.
